Deer Lake RCMP say they are awaiting autopsy results from the Medical Examiner's Office in St. John's in relation to the human remains found in a cabin destroyed by fire Aug. 6.
In a release, the Mounties added the names of the victims — a 56-year-old male resident from Gillams and a 50-year-old female and her son from Trout River — are not being released.
“Family members have asked that others respect their privacy during their time of mourning,” the police said.
The fire occurred on Whitewash Road at an area locally known as Bonne Bay Big Pond.
The cabin was between 17 and 20 kilometres from Highway 430 and is accessible only by a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
